This forum is very useful, but I'd like some good books about puppies and general care of dogs. That way I'll have all my information in one place :)

There are a lot of good book recommendations in this thread. :)

I'm re-reading The Other End of the Leash right now and I highly recommend it!

My faves (so far)
Training: The Idiot's Guide to Positive Dog Training by Pam Dennison
The Power of Positive Dog Training by Pat Miller
The Puppy Whisperer by Paul Owens

Behaviour and understanding your dog:
Patricia McConnell's "The Other End of the Leash" and "For the Love of a dog".
Jean Donaldson's "The Culture Clash"
Brenda Aloff's "Canine Body Language: a Photographic Guide"
Turid Rugaas' "On Talking Terms with Dogs: Calming Signals"

I also have favourites for "special needs" dogs...Leash reactivity, scientific behavior studies, fearful dogs etc. If you want a list I'd be happy to recommend more. LOL
